June 2011

I finally finished my 12 Square Quilt by Handblessing. This was a free SAL that was done thru my local stitching group and I'd been working on it since fall of last year (I'm such a slow stitcher - lol) Of course I didn't follow the colors suggested but I did use silks. And I'm telling you - I'd rather use Krinik than silks - nothing wrong with silks - just I found them very slippery


When I had completed it I asked one of the more experienced sewers to put it into a pillow for me. I was lucky enough to find a blue batik that perfectly matched the blue silk I was using. The hardest part of this whole project was that I limited myself to only 5 colors and trying to get the colors not to be side by side.


Well - on to the pictures. Hope you like my pillow. And I thank every one of you who leave a comment even if I don't get back to you personally (I've never figured out yet how to respond from the blog)

The pillow is so pretty and your stitching is great. Your choice of backing for the pillow sets off your crossstitching so well.
Good job.
